B. Traveling whenever possible. I'm facinated by the incredible linguistic, culteral, biological & geographic diversity of our planet, and I hope to visit every corner of it in my lifetime. The world continues to blow open my mind & heart and experiencing it just makes me really happy. One of the many reasons I love Seattle is that I meet people from all over the world, without leaving home, helps feed my need between adventures. My next big trip will be Morocco.
C. Enjoying as many of Seattle's cultural/artistic offerings as I can. In terms of live performances, music, authors, artists, speakers, films, conferences, events etc. we have so much that it's a literal shame not to take advantage of it. Living in a lot of middles-of-nowhere growing up I had only books/CD's/tv/movies to show me the wider world, so being where the people are, the ones who make those portals, is magic.
D. Supporting my teams: UW Huskies, Seattle Sounders & Seahawks, and Man City. You don't have to love or even like football or footy, but you can't mind that I do.

Being an ethical non-monogamist
David Foster Wallace, China Mieville, Neil Gaiman, A.M. Homes, Aimee Bender, Hunter S. Thompson, Michael Chabon, Suzanne Collins, Dave Eggars, Cormac McCarthy, Kurt Vonnegut, Margaret Atwood, Oscar Wilde, Haruki Murakami, Isabel Allende, Jonathan Safran Foer, Jhumpa Lahiri, Vladimir Nabokov, David Mitchell, Douglas Adams, Stephan King, Nick Hornby, Orhan Pamuk, Helen DeWitt, Stieg Larsson, Laila Lelani, Zora Neal Hurston, Don DeLillo, Chuck Palahniuk, Zadie Smith, James Joyce, Jorge Luis Borges, Junot Diaz, Albert Camus, Jonathan Franzen, William Gibson, Terry Brooks, Corey Doctorow.
Some writers I quite DISLIKE:
Thomas Pynchon, Mark Z. Danielewski, Brett Easton Ellis, John Fowles, Paulo Coelho, Dan Brown, John Irving, Ayn Rand, Nicholas Sparks.
I tend to read mostly modern fiction, and very little non-fiction, though "Sex at Dawn" was a life-altering, paradigm-shifting book for me. Spoiler alert : it's not really about sex; it's really about the vast lie that is the "natural" misogyny of humans, and the incredible truth that is our fundamentally, macro-historically, EGALITARIAN nature. Yes, really :D
You think my writers & music lists are long? I'm not even going to try w/r/t movies, it's ridiculous how much I love all kinds of movies :)
Parks & Recreation, Louie, Big Bang Theory, Community, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Nurse Jackie, Shameless, Newsroom, True Blood, Girls, Savage U, Bob's Burgers, Misfits, Boardwalk Empire, Spartacus, The Wire.
I will say that I totally get someone saying they don't have time for movies/tv, or find the costs prohibitive, but I strongly disagree with people who disparage the forms entirely and claim they have low artistic/cultural value. See David Foster Wallace's essays on tv/film (for example "E. Unibus Pluram") for discussions far more eloquent than I could ever write.
Rachmaninov, Trent Reznor, Adele, Feist, Katie Davis, The Long Winters, Sara Bareilles, Rhianna, Luck One, Regina Spektor, Mos Def, Vicci Martinez, Al Green, Amy Winehouse, Dixie Chicks, Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, Rufus Wainwright, Amanda Palmer, Fiona Apple, Imogen Heap, Geoffrey Oryema, Gorillaz, Iron & Wine, John Legend, Malika Zarra, Nina Simone, OceanLab, Pink, Patty Griffin, Portishead, John Mayer, Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Tracy Chapman, Yael Naim.
I don't just like music, I NEED music. All different kinds, for all of my moods. Easiest way to get myself into any particular mindset I want to/should be in is to use a playlist tailored to it.
I don't cook really. I mean I can; I just don't much. Tortellini in caramelized garlic-olive oil (my dad's recipe) w/caprese sliders is my signature meal, otherwise my spouse is a great cook & he ends up doing most of it, if/when we're actually home at the same time & eating together.
I got kind of addicted to avocado smoothies while I was in the middle east this summer, and now have to make them myself since only bubble tea shops seem to make anything like it here, and it's just not the same.
If I'm at home &/or feeding only myself it's probably going to be a hodge-podge of raw veggies/breads/cheeses/salads. I do love to bake in the winter though. My last experiment was a fresh pineapple upside-down cake from scratch, featuring Kraken rum: delicious!
I like eating out and Seattle is a foodie paradise; some of my favorites are:
Malai kofta @India Bistro
Nazareth salad @Gorgeous George's
Beet salad @Quinns
Salade verte @Cafe Presse
Couscous veggie tajine @Kasbah
Sweet rice @Caspian
French fries @Dick's
Veggie tamales @Rancho Bravo
Indian tacos @Off the Rez
Almond paste croissant @Le Boulangerie
Kohaku don @Maneki
Pesto pizza @Hot Mama's
Grits @Toulouse Petit
Macarons @Le Panier
White velvet @Vivace.
Aladdin on the Ave (the one by 43rd) has the BEST hummus in town.
I am vegetarian but I have zero problem with compassionate carnivores ^_^
*This specifically asked for "things" one cannot live without; and since people are *not* things they are not on the list, but my family & friends are everything to me.
To be CLEAR = For us, being non-monogamous (AKA poly or polyamorous) does not mean:
1. not committing to relationships
2. having no boundaries/rules/agreements
3. having nothing but casual partners
4. being dishonest "cheaters"
5. indiscriminate sluttitude
Being non-mono is an orientation; it is who we are and how we love best. It is the interpersonal landscape we have found to be most in keeping with our particular natures.
I am not stuck on bodies; when I find myself attracted it is invariably to a person, not a collection of parts. Being a "Mae West" /femme type myself I find that opposites attract and thus I tend to be especially drawn to masculinity; in ether male or female bodied people. This is not to say that I haven't fallen for my share of feminine folks, it's just rare.

You're NOT attempting non-consensual fantasy fulfillment via unsolicited missives going into graphic detail about scenarios, your proclivities and secret desires. It's just sad really. I don't read them, I just delete them, so please don't bother.
You understand the following definition of being bisexual:
"A superpower that enables one, upon reaching into the pants of a willing partner, to be happy with whatever one finds there."
